Change the service type to Automatic delayed start. By default TFTP service is configured as manual. Changing it to automatic (Delayed Start) helps us from extra admin work

Configure TFTP Service’s Root directory by click from File menu –> Configure

Configure TFTP root directory as per your requirement. I have left it default. This screen also provides you ability to control TFTP service.
